Bills OG Richie Incognito and Jaguars DE Yannick Ngakoue Clear the Air Over Reported Racial Slur

Bills guard Richie Incognito spoke with Jaguars defensive end Yannick Ngakoue on Wednesday, and the two have apparently cleared the air regarding Ngakoue’s accusation that Incognito used a racial slur against him during the teams’ wild-card playoff game, Michael DiRocco of ESPN reports.

Ngakoue said he wanted to move on from the incident and declined to talk about what Incognito said to him, but he did confirm the two players had spoken before the AFC’s first Pro Bowl practice and ESPN’s Wide World of Sports Complex. Incognito declined an interview after the practice.

Jaguars defensive tackle Malik Jackson said he saw Incognito and Ngakoue speaking on Wednesday morning but did not ask Ngakoue what they spoke about.

“We [NFL players] have a huge respect for each other, and sometimes the heat of the moment can get to you, and you can say things you might not really mean or do things you might not really mean and be apologetic for it,” Jackson said. “I think it shows the true character of a man to come and apologize and/or talk about it to clear the air.”

The NFL is still investigating the matter.
